Use of the –#repealthe8th hashtag. First asterisk is the day the mural was installed, second when it was removed.

To get around planning violations that prohibited a painted mural an ‘Augmented Reality Marker’ has been placed on the exact spot where the original mural stood.
When people view the marker on their android phones (iPhone version will be available soon) using the website 8mural.com they will see a digital version of the mural in situ on the wall.
The website will also allow people to print their own version of the digital marker that they can stick on their own (legally owned walls).
As this marker is effectively a poster it does not contravene any of the planning regulations that resulted in the DCC requesting that the original mural be removed.
